I usually consider that spring has arrived when our neighbor’s gorgeous saucer magnolia tree blooms, and that happened about February 7th this year — a bit early, I think. That’s also usually the same time that the redbuds start to bloom, and they bloomed beautifully, but now the blooms are gone. I didn’t even take any pictures of those this year, for no good reason(!).
But it has seemed to be cooler this spring than other years of late, and I know some of you have still been getting some snow! So, in celebration of a gorgeous spring for everyone (in this hemisphere), here’s another new painting.
